Growing Avocado from a stone
Closed

Recently someone (I think it was Rosemary) mentioned growing avocados from the stone, so when I had an avocado for lunch today I decided to give it a go. Fingers crossed it will work. Have you ever grown fruits such as avocado or citrus fruits from the pip? Did it work?

Tamarind pips make neat little pot plants with loads of tiny white flowers, their leaves unfold at daybreak and fold up when evening approaches, so quite entertaining in a slow sort of way! I have never managed to over-winter them indoors though - presumably not enough of both humid heat and UV... The fully grown trees are some 50ft tall, so perhaps it's just as well. Unsurprisingly no fruit as yet!

I have tried citrus trees, and they grow quite happily but are unlikely to bear fruit. Two developed an infestation of scale insect, so I put them outside to spray them, and somebody stole them both, which did at least solve the problem. I have a stone pine growing in a pot in the kitchen, from a seed acquired on holiday in Provence ; it's at least ten years old, and I should really like to plant it out somewhere, but I haven't found anywhere suitable.

lots of different ones when I was a child, the citrus family have lovely green glossy leaves, but they never come to much in this climate, well they didn't for me on the kitchen window sill. lol

I grew a peach tree from a stone when I was a child and it had peaches, when I married and left home my father cut it down.

Yes,the Avocado grew to about 2 feet high and a couple of leaves but could not survive our climate,maybe in a greenhouse it would do better.
Mrs B has grown a Fir tree from a seed harvested from a cone at Sandbanks,amazingly it thrives in our London clay and is over 6 feet high and growing well.
